Wait, What? Ep. 138: Gone Galoshing

Jeff Lester

Ahh, nostalgia. I used to love that cover….and I know I should crop out that border.  But. Hey, Internet! My apologies in advance–things are rushed, except maybe a little more so! My Monday schedule changed around a bit so it’s gonna be a rush on my part to make sure they still happen before Tuesday morning. All of which is to say: join me after the jump for some very hasty show notes, yes?

Wait, What? Ep. 128: Radical Cheek

Jeff Lester

Giffen doing Kirby in the amazing MOTU: Origin of Hordak one-shot. Delays, delays, delays!  Sorry for ‘em–I was out of town for a few days losing money at “The World’s Biggest Little Slot Machine Gouge.”  No complaints on that front, actually — I spent much more time lying by the pool and eating cinnamon rolls the size of my head than I did setting my money on fire and throwing it in the air (metaphorically, mind you: it only felt like that because of the speed with which it disappeared out of my hands) and had really a fine old time overall — but it did get in the way of timely posting of this, our 128th podcast and the…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 117: Sometimes Dead is Better

Jeff Lester

One of Annie Wu’s great covers from the interior of Hawkeye #8. Yep, it looks like this posting on Monday thing might be our new podcasting schedule for the conceivable future.  I hope it is not a problem for everyone (including Hibbs, who just posted the shipping list a few hours ago, do go check it out and comment. After the jump: our charming and trying-hard-to-be-respectable old chum–the show notes.

What’s wrong this this picture?

Brian Hibbs

I tlooks like a logo designer threw up on this cover!

Wait, What? Ep. 100: Year Zero

Jeff Lester

(One of my favorite hundredth issue covers, by Joe Staton and Dick Giordano for DC Comics) I don’t know why, but for a moment there… I was very afraid this episode wouldn’t end up existing?  I think because, you know, you say something is a thing, as opposed to just being business as usual, and the next thing you know there’s a certain nimbus of expectation around it, even if only to yourself?  Sometimes it  seems like that kind of nimbus makes the best kind of target for capricious fate… Anyway, enough of that “and then he tore his eyes out in the fifth act!” musing, join us behind the jump for show notes and celebratory waffles, yes?

Wait, What? Ep. 83: As Good As A Feast

Jeff Lester

Hoo boy.  Did not think I was going to make this particular deadline.  I won’t bore you with the blah-blah-blahs, but let’s just say: papa needs a new microphone and he needs one bad.  I apologize in advance for all the not-especially-discreet cracking and popping going on at various points in the background of this.  We are maybe two weeks away from a solution to both it and the mild echo chamber effect that’s afflicted us ever since Graeme managed to transcend this corporeal realm. Buttttttttt, anywayyyyyyy… Gotta keep this short and snappy so lemme just say this:  Wait, What? Ep. 83 is two hours and twenty-seven minutes long, and Graeme and I do not spend all that time trying…  Read More…

Wait, What? Ep. 82: The Problem With Problems

Jeff Lester

Hola, chicos! The above image is from Dave Sim’s Glamourpuss #24, just one of many fine comic book hoohahs under discussion in episode 82 of the latest podcast from the brilliant (but presently ill!) Graeme McMillan and the generally slow-on-the-uptake (but mostly healthy!) yours truly. I gotta say, we pretty much drove right in on this one, and ended up talking Action Comics #8 in the first three minutes of this two hour twenty-five minute blabapalooza, and also managed to hit topics like OMAC #8, the colorization of  Scott Pilgrim, the battles behind the TV show Community, a great blog post by Steve K. about the state of the comics Internet, Casanova #3, Supreme #20, Fatale #4, Strike Force Morituri,…  Read More…

“Clod. I Have WEAPONS…” Comics! Sometimes They Are Almost Fresh!

John Kane

It’s a post about comics! Is it early? Is it late? Time is in flux! Only if one man can face his Pull List can The Balance be restored! One Man. One Pull List. There will be Words… (…probably the wrong ones).

Wait, What? Ep. 71: Funk, Soul, Brother

Jeff Lester

Yep, a bit of a delay but here we are, more or less as promised: Wait, What? Ep. 71, featuring our new theme song courtesy of the hyper-talented Graeme McMillan. This done-in-one episode is not quite two hours and forty-five minutes and covers, um, lots of stuff. Stuff like OMAC and the other cancelled new52 titles; the current state of George Perez’s career and what Marvel’s marketing team could do with it; Mark Millar’s Trouble and Spider-Man; comments by Charles Vess and Ariel Olivetti about Marvel; Mark Waid’s Amazing Spider-Man/Daredevil crossover, Jason Aaron’s Wolverine and the X-Men as well as Wolverine #300. Plus, a lot of babbling from Jeff about PunisherMAX #21; a debate how many “good” issues a creator…  Read More…

“Now, Tanned, Rested, Ready And Fully Equipped With Brazilians…” Comics! Sometimes They Are Kind of New(ish)!

John Kane

A couple of posts down from this rubbish there is a quite extraordinary thing occurring. People are discussing Digital comics and no one has been killed! It’s a Christmas miracle, by Jove! Why not go have a looksee, this rot isn’t going anywhere.

Wait, What? Ep. 65.1: I Think We’re All Bozos in this Podcast

Jeff Lester

Yup, and so we are back with Wait, What? which some of you might remember from the days of antiquity as a thing like unto a radio play, enacted by Mr. Graeme McMillan and myself for the amusement of listeners. Episode 65 was supposed to be a piercing search by the two of us for the more-than-two-of-you for the secrets to the considerable success of one Steve Gerber and his run on a Marvel series from the ’70s popularly known as The Defenders. I would like to say we were successful but, um, well, you will hear for yourselves. We do discuss it, mind you, but alas we also discuss Carrier IQ for the first batch of minutes, a big…  Read More…

“…I’m Taking The Case.” Comics! Sometimes They Aren’t Older Than Your Grandad!

John Kane

Here’s an image from DAREDEVIL #4; a comic that isn’t talked about within. But I just really, really wanted it up there so I indulged myself. I do go on about #5 of DAREDEVIL though. Is that alright? Are you sure? Because it matters to me! Well, I can’t promise to help but I did write some words about some comics that were actually published this Century. Yay me! Oh yeah, one of the images may be NSFW, depends where you work, I guess?

“But first, call your girlfriend…” Comics! Sometimes they are Nu!

John Kane

Um, no show without Punch, right?

Wait, What? 56.1: The Loneliest Number Since…

Jeff Lester

We are back!  With absolutely 100% less whining!  Well, 90%.  Actually, let’s call it 85–no, 82, 82% less whining! Yes, with 82% less whining, here comes Wait, What? Episode 56.1, roaring around the bend, with Graeme McMillan and myself discussing strange and unexpected topics–topics like OMAC #1, Batgirl #1, Animal Man #1, Detective Comics #1, Swamp Thing #1, Stormwatch #1 and, of course… X-Men #17. (That really should have a ‘?!!?’ at end of that sentence, but you get the idea.) It’s one hour and one second of two-fisted soft reboot action! Wise souls have perhaps already encountered this podcast on iTunes (in which case, I hope they were struck it down and achieved instant enlightenment) but you can, of…  Read More…

“More Water, Ma’am?”…Comics? They still make ‘em and I still read ‘em!

John Kane

Enter my personal four colour nightmare! Gonna make your eyes boil like eggs! Or bore you senseless. Hard to tell really. Anyway, I read some comics wrote some words – it’s a story as old as Love itself! Like my face. (You look lost, stranger – The Shipping List is the next post down)
